They had me at their save-the-date. But I continued to fall for them at their OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD-AMAZING engagement session! You can read a little bit about how they met and their proposal on that blog post. Today I’m talking about the wedding! The most fabulous DIY wedding…and I mean, DIY. Almost every detail was hand-crafted by Donna, Oleg and their friends! From creating home-made soaps with a custom fragrance to staining crates and etching glass…this couple did it all! The Inn at Fernbrook Farms was the perfect venue for their gorgeous wedding.
Majorly obsessed with Donna’s Badgley Mischka shoes!
Remember when I said everything was DIY? That includes the RINGS! Oleg created this custom ring set at his family’s jewelry shop. I’m blown away by his talent!
Hello stunning lady!
The perfect shade of purple and the loveliest ladies to be around!
Funny faces make the world go round! :)
Special thank you to my wonderful husband Christopher for photographing Oleg and his groomsmen…I’m loving the lens flare in this photo!
Here are those hand-crafted soaps I told you about! Donna made this adorable frame with burlap and Scrabble pieces…she even included a hint of that pretty purple!
This is one of my favorite details from the wedding…so crafty and perfect for a farm wedding!
I love that tiny smile on Donna’s dad’s face as he watched his daughter be wed…so beautiful!
Oh the light…magical, magical light!
If I could go back in time, I would have gold chargers and mercury glass at my wedding!
I love the succulents and vintage silverware…simply stunning!
How cute are those little piggy “place cards?”
Hooray for two cakes! Donna and Oleg included a traditional Lithuanian Šakotis cake – which is baked by painting layers of dough onto a rotating spit in a special open oven! I like to think it grew itself, like a tree…
And lastly, the best memory of all (obvi) – me and Chris with the lovely couple! I’m a little disheveled and that’s my “bad side” but we’re still pretty cute, eh? Congratulations guys! It was an honor to celebrate with you! xo! :)
